I am the new owner of a beautiful and loving 1 year old rescue. And when i say new she is the first dog i have ever owned, EVER!! Let me give some background. Her name is Bryar and she is a Labrador retriever mix. she was in and out of 2 kill shelters in Alabama, then picked up by the almost home foundation. She almost died of distemper after that too. Needless to say the pup has had a rough life until now. Her foster says she never had any trouble with her doing her business outside, she never crated her and that she was an all together amazing foster dog. Well she is now having some issues. I live in an apartment complex where there is a lot of other dogs and they all go out to this nice large field to poop and pee. Bryar is scared to death to go out there, i sometimes have to drag here and even then she will not do her business. We have been putting out puppy pads for when we arent home because that seems to be the only time she will go. She pees on the puppy pad, but then poops all over my carpet. I dont think she means to at all and feels bad, but how do i get her to go outside? She also does this excited pee whenever we come home and it gets all over the carpet. Can anyone help me please!!!!
